Hello to all. I will be travelling to both Hungary (mainly Budapest) and Romania in the near future, a mixture of business and pleasure. I am new to this board, and am looking to finally start aquiring a more grown up wardrobe. Unfortunately I do not have the time or desire to spend countless days and ubelievable amounts of energy , nerves and stress in searching for stores, fits etc ( trying out 20 different pairs of pants to find one that "is not that bad" is one reason why my wardrobe ist still in such a juvenile state....I actually developed an allergy to retail stores). With this in mind I am looking for a tailor who can help me in this regard. Because I will have some spare time in my eastern european trip I am kindly asking for any recommendations for Budapest, Bucharest or any other areas in these countries. A nice thank you in advance for all the helpful tips.

Depends on how much time do you have - there are some good tailors in Bucharest - Negrila is on the top tier, there are some more, also - but it will take around two to three weeks for a full bespoke suit.
As for stores, do not expect to find something blowing your mind, mostly the European chains (Zara & Co.) with some going more pricey than in Western Europe. If you want to go on the tailored way, I strongly suggest that you bring your fabric with you, here the choice is very scarce and rather costly.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
